Kyiv was once a bustling industrial hub and it has the boarded-up factories to prove it. The closure of these spacious facilities has opened up new opportunities for the retail sector. This is the case with Bilshovyk: a modern and attractive shopping mall set in a renovated factory. It is located a short walk from the Shuliavs’ka metro station. Bilshovyk offers shoppers an abundance of stores and boutiques as well as numerous entertainment possibilities such as restaurants, cafes, bowling, ice skating, an arcade, and a children’s play land.
